I’m obsessed with all the Disney themed Vans that have been released the past few years. In true bargain style, I did not buy the super adorable Minnie Mouse bow Vans when they were still in stock. I looked for them on every re-sale site that I know of and I only found them for ridiculously high prices. Instead of getting all upset or talking myself into spending a fortune on them, I decided to make these Minnie Mouse Shoes myself. They may not look exactly like the Minnie Mouse Vans but they sure are pretty darn cute and I can’t wait to wear them to Disney World.
Minnie Mouse Shoes DIY

To make this DIY as simple as possible, I purchased shoes that already had polka dots printed on them. Of course, you can purchase canvas shoes in any color you want and add polka dots to them. I also went ahead and purchased a party pack of Minnie Mouse headbands for a few reasons.
- They had the puffy bows I was looking for.
- They were surprisingly cheaper than many other bow options.
- I wanted to use the Mickey ears for a future DIY.
If none of these things matter to you, by all means by whatever bow you like best. Now let’s get started!
Minnie Mouse Shoes Tutorial
Step One // Remove bows from headband. Do this gently as you may want to save those Mickey ears for a future DIY project.
Step Two // Test the placement of your bow on the shoe. Once desired location has been found, use the hot glue to secure your bow.
Step Three // Once glue is dry, test the strength of the bond. This can be done by taking them on a test stroll around the block.
Step Four // Pair with your favorite Disney outfit!
The total cost of this project is under $45. When you can only find the original Vans for $70 or more, this is a real deal for shoes that are just as cute. Toodles!
